Helping people to resolve conflict situations in a peaceful, private and cost-efficient manner.

Need help resolving family or business disputes without going to court? I can help.


Family Mediation: The Mature Way to Resolve Conflicts

  • How Can I share Custody?
  • Should we put mom/dad in a nursing home?
  • Sibling disputes but want to stay out of court?
  • My children are being moved out of state, what can I do?
  • I think dad’s caregiver is abusing him, what do I do?

Life is full of disputes, I’m here to help by facilitating a process in which everyone has the opportunity in a neutral, structured, private, confidentials environment to: identify issues, discuss options, recognize the other’s interests and work towards settlement. There is a known versus an unknown outcome. Parties choose to  settle on terms all can accept. Attorneys are welcome and encouraged to participate as desired/needed.
